95% of our job is not glamorous - long desk hours, endless traffic, grimy site visits, casual sexism - but once in a blue moon we get to be the ritzy glitzy people you think we are. Last week we got flown to Dubai (yes, you read that right) to buy accessories for a client.
Ask us why this was the perfect opportunity..
(a) Love Dubai
(b) Love Shopping
(c) All of the above
Here is a list of all the stores we visited and our favourite products from them.
"Just love me some west elm" - Obvs, Krishna. (Pictured above).
This cool warehouse is filled with designer furniture, lighting and accessories - Tom Dixon, Lee Broom, Moooi, Bocci and more! They will move to Dubai Design District soon.
Furniture, soft furnishings & accessories. They have Kelly Hoppen products !!
LOVE this store, all neutral colour scheme, very contemporary and just so pure (pictured above).
Bernhardt, Pantone and all the cool stuff Fornasetti has to offer.
These are the stores exhibiting at Downtown Design during the Dubai Design Week in November:
